On 28 April 2015, the Chartered Insurance Institute in the UK published best practice guidance (dated 23 April 2015) regarding requests made under section 29(3) of the UK's Data Protection Act, which allows organisations to share information in order to detect and prevent fraud.  The guidelines state that it is expected that insurers will be one of the main types of entity to adopt the guidelines.  Amongst other matters, the guidelines aim to (a) improve the quality of information shared under, and increase regulatory compliance with, the Act and (b) to increase (where appropriate) the exchange of relevant personal data between insurers in respect of requests made under section 29(3). It is intended that the Insurance Fraud Bureau will administer (and further develop) the guidelines.
